Bloodshot, Bloodshot #1

With tons of massive explosions and machine gunfire action, Bloodshot #1 (Valiant Entertainment) lets loose on the imagination with some big battle scenes. For fans of the ‘80s action movies, Bloodshot delivers as an audacious comic book on steroids. 

Bloodshot is a nanite-fueled super-soldier forever at war. What happens to the world when he starts picking his own battles? Will this one-man army be able to end the fighting—or just leave more destruction in his wake? Bloodshot’s missions have made waves, as now the shadowy BLACK BAR has their sights set on him—but what do they have planned for this unkillable hero?

Here are 5 reasons why you should read Bloodshot #1:

5) The Action!

Bloodshot #1

After reading this first installment, I really hope the upcoming Vin Diesel movie is really close to its source material. I really want an explosion heavy and happy action movie. This comic really hits the spot if you’re an adrenaline junkie.   

4) The Writing!

As a die-hard fan of Hack/Slash and Grayson, writer Tim Seeley really gets to heart of his protagonist while delivering the spectacle. Bloodshot is insane in the membrane and every thing he does is a suicide mission. The letters by Dave Sharpe captures the shoot-em-ups, knife gouging, and the big explosions, without ever getting boring. 

3) The Artwork!

The artwork by Brett Booth is simply amazing to look at. The inks by Adelso Corona capture the muscular lines on Bloodshot’s topless and hunky body. I love how Booth’s illustrations captures the incredible stunts as Bloodshot jumps out of a moving car. 

2) The Colors!

The colors by Andrew Dalhouse captures the flying gunfire zipping past Bloodshot’s head. The red tones really pop out when with the shooting target on Bloodshot’s chest. The pages are bathed in yellow when the explosions are set off. 

1) So Much Action!

Every single page of Bloodshot #1 runs on pure adrenaline. How does the second issue top the first one? I really want to know. 

Bloodshot #1 arrives in stores on September 25, 2019.
